I followed this plan from Ana White, my favorite builder!
Because I used wood from the deck, it is extremely sturdy.
I used 2 x 4, 2 x 6 and 2 x 8. So yes very sturdy!
But I kind of like that, and with my neighbor's ivy taking over the fence,
it gives it a chance to stand out a little!
We have used some much of the old deck wood: a love seat, a wood and a bike storage area.
It has improved the yard and cut down on the amount of trash!
Now I have a nice place to work on my fall garden, well may be just a few mums!
